Something to be Thankful For

W112313 003-LR

I don’t know how many people there are in the world these days, but the number is in the billions.  They all have their stories, their hopes, dreams, fears and joys; who can know them all?

God does!

It is hard to get one’s mind around, but it’s true; God knows everything about each one of us.  He knows your thoughts, your habits, your little secrets, your hopes and your motives.  He hears your prayers and your cries and your joy; you are never alone.

So many people feel all alone, so many people feel like nobody cares… it is really a sad state because it is not necessary.  God cares about, knows, loves… YOU!

He desires to have a relationship with all of us.  What keeps that from happening?  We do. We need to seek Him out, to let Him in and to give ourselves over to His love; we need to run back to His loving arms. There is hope, there is safety, there is love…

O Lord, you have searched me
    and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
    you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
    you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
    you know it completely, O Lord.

Psalm 139:1-4

    this article says “we need to seek HIM out.” I’m in the process of seeking HIM out but at this time here’s how I see Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates his subtleness towards us that after he allowed men to fall and became sinners he sent his son to save us from his own trap.
